A Letter to Sophie
Happy New Year our sweet girl. We want you to know that you have been with us in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers. There are so many things that we can’t wait to share with you! When you come home you will find your two dogs Murphy and Daisy. Don’t be afraid sweet girl, they will soon become your best friends. Murphy will wear crowns and beads, just ask your big sister Hannah, she will show you. Daisy is so sweet she will sit with you near the fire and you can pet her until you both fall asleep, just ask your big brother Ben, he will show you.
Your room has been ready since last December! Your crib is filled with soft dolls and toys for you to snuggle while you sleep. Your sister Hannah helped decorate your room. She picked the color and the curtains, when you look out of your crib you will see your big sister sleeping across the room in her bed. If you don’t see her yell for your big brother Ben, he is just across the hall and is sure to be still in bed!
Your closet and drawers are filled with clothes for you to wear. The thought of you wearing one of these cute dresses or little outfits have helped me through a rough day. We can’t wait to see you in the beautiful christening gown Mommy and Daddy bought for you last March in San Francisco.
But most of all Sophie when you come home it will be like you have always been here, because my dear sweet girl you have! With every day that has passed we have talked about you, dreamt of you, and wished for you to come home! So our sweet girl know now and always that we love you. Happy New Year and we will see you soon!
Love always and forever,
Ben and Hannah
